Eduardo Escobar went 1-for-3 with a triple and two runs scored on Sunday against the Mariners.
It's been a really rough go this season for Escobar, who is slashing just .205/.312/.336 on the year. Escobar just isn't swinging much, as his 46.9% Swing% is the lowest of his career. As a result, he's both walking and striking out more than ever before. His approach clearly isn't working, as he has just one home run and seven RBI on the season. Hopefully, he'll alter his approach soon and return to being the fairly reliable run producer he had proven himself to be over the last several years.
Eduardo Escobar went 1-for-4 with an RBI in the first game of Tuesday's doubleheader against the Braves.
Escobar is slashing just .250/.359/.394 with one home run and six RBI on the season. His walk rate of 14.6% is way out of line with his career mark, but it does provide him with some value in points leagues, at least for the moment. Escobar hit 28 home runs last year and 35 back in 2019, so he obviously has more power than he has shown thus far. But, for the moment, he's not much of an option in rotisserie leagues.
Eduardo Escobar hit a solo shot off Giants' starter Anthony DeSclafani in the second inning for his first long ball of the season. It was his lone hit in three at-bats while adding a walk.
Coming off a season where Escobar hit 28 homers, it took 13 games to tally his first dinger of the 2022 season. The switch-hitting 33-year-old is batting .318 with seven doubles on the season, so more homers should be coming.
The Mets have reportedly signed infielder Eduardo Escobar to a two-year contract worth roughly $25 million.
Escobar, who turns 32 in January, slashed .253/.314/.472 with 28 homers, 90 RBI, 48 walks, and 124 strikeouts through 146 games with the Diamondbacks and Brewers last season. The addition presumably rules out any chance of a Baez/Lindor union in the middle infield.
Eduardo Escobar went 1-for-5 with a solo home run Saturday against the Cubs.
Escobar went deep in the third inning to put the Brewers ahead by one. Otherwise, he was held totally in check. He's batting .252 this season with 28 homers and 82 RBI in 503 at-bats.
